Many GMC owners wonder whether they need a GMC strut bar or not. To figure this out, you should first understand what a GMC strut bar does. Most GMC vehicles use a MacPherson strut system for the suspension. The strut towers used in the system will give, or "flex", when you turn a corner with your car. Sometimes, if you take a corner too hard, one or more of your tires can lose contact with the pavement. The GMC strut bar addresses this problem, especially for high performance cars or vehicles with wider than average wheel bases. The purpose of the GMC strut bar is to connect two parallel strut towers. This not only reduces the flex and the stress on the strut towers, it also distributes your vehicle's weight evenly on both sides of the car. This means that there will be greater friction between your tires and the pavement. The addition of a GMC strut bar gives you more control over your vehicle and more power when you're making turns and cornering. Many people also choose to install a GMC strut bar because it looks quite cool and shiny. The modified look of a GMC strut bar is an additional benefit to the structural advantages. Most GMC strut bars are shaped like an X, and are rigid and inflexible. They are easy to install on your vehicle with just a few simple tools, and they really give your performance a boost.
